How to Create and Design Venn Diagrams in Google Docs

venn diagrams

Venn diagrams are circles that overlap to show how things are alike or different.

Why are they called Venn diagrams? They were introduced in 1880 by John Venn, a mathematician, and philosopher. He didn’t call them Venn diagrams, but they were named after him.

To start, you want to have at least two topics. But you can use more than two circles. For example, if you wanted to make fancy Venn diagrams with three things or three circles, make sure that they all overlapped, and then the part in the middle is the thing that all three circles have in common.
